"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I'm enjoying the idea of a shutdown defense. He's a big part of that. But a cameo every so often is fine.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Remote Replay Official||
I like it. It would distance the replay official from the emotions of the game. Even in the booth I'm sure that the official is being rushed or biased by the game atmosphere. I think it would also be smart to have an observer there in the room whose job is to ensure accuracy and integrity. Furthermore, to promote transparency, you take screen shots that determined the call and send them to the affected to schools after the game.

But born and raised in Lansing?

Well can you explain away the replay booth. They have the time and technology to get it right, and they still got it wrong.
I know the logical thing to do is humanize the refs, but even the entire media disagrees with you and those refs. There's just no excuse when you have the benefit of official review!

How do you police the police? Something tells me there's zero chance this gets addressed like it should be. The Refs are untouchable and they know it.

I'd be happy if we weren't ranked. You know, that whole chip on your shoulder thing. It's clear these guys are working their asses off for more than just a number.

For what? Being a dick face for the past 9 years?

Who the fuck is making these comments anyways? Can someone out them so we can just take em behind the woodshed and deal with them already?

Isn't that also a sign of inconsistency? Furthermore, is inconsistency even a word?

It could be a lot worse. Especially if we're still talking about this a week from now.

Don't forget all of those dropped passes. Receivers need to help him out.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I don't see the rules||
I don't see the rules changing. I think the pressure on officials to make football a non-contact sport has never been so high. They'd probably rather piss off an entire fan base and every football coach past, present and future, than stand in the way of a large political movement.
Don't get me wrong. I know we should be concerned about player safety. But, back when I played football we knew the risks and still loved being a part of it. I mean, it's football!

Worst. Officiating. I've. Ever. Seen.

Sparty losing 2 games is a big possiblity, although unlikely considering we now know that God is now in the business of miracling Sparty into winning games. However, I don't see us beating OSU until our offense starts eliminating mistakes and executes.

Can I interest you in never ever coaching kids in any sport?
Those are some pretty hateful words for a kid that punted the ball 3 times in the 10 yard line and had a net punt for 80!!! yards.

You honestly believe after that horribly epic ending that all will be forgotten by next season. Maybe you've had a little to much to drink! My prediction is that every time Michigan is mentioned on television or on social media that there will be a referrence to this game subplanted in the conversation for at least the rest of this season if not most of next.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||The question isn't will we||
The question isn't will we beat Minnesota. It's will we beat ourselves. And why aren't there any threads dedicated to the refs? That was the worst officiating I've ever witnessed! For both sides!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||If you truly believe that,||
If you truly believe that, then may I suggest not visiting any sports websites for the next 3 weeks. It'll be more than demoralizing for you.
It's more than a loss...it's an epic loss!

I honestly don't seeing us winning too many more games the rest of the season or next season. I don't know much about basketball but it just looks like the players don't fit the system. Square peg in a round hole. His system requires consistent shooters from space and at least one guy that can take it to the rim. Back to the recruiting drawing board.
